Chad & Jeremy Overview

Chad and Jeremy were an English singing folk folk music rock rock music duo duet (music) in the 1960s, comprising Chad Stuart (born David Stuart Chadwick, 10 December 1941, Windermere, Cumbria) and Jeremy Clyde (born Michael Thomas Jeremy Clyde, 22 March 1941, Dorney, Buckinghamshire). They were part of the British Invasion, a large influx of British Great Britain rock and pop pop music musicians to the American United States music scene.

The duo's first single single (music) , "Yesterday's Gone", for the Ember Records label, which was arranged by John Barry John Barry (composer) , was their only UK United Kingdom hit hit record . However, Chad and Jeremy's strings-backed sound held a greater appeal in United States, where they benefitted from an early 1960s strain of commercial folk music. World Artists Records released their early U.S. music. Their second single, "A Summer Song", hit #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1964. Follow-ups "Willow Weep for Me" (a 1930s song that was recorded by Paul Whiteman, Billie Holiday and others; Chad & Jeremy's cover version went #1 on the Easy Listening chart Hot Adult Contemporary Tracks ) and on Columbia Records in 1965, "Before and After" reached the Top 20, and altogether Chad and Jeremy had seven U.S. Top 40 hits during 1964-66.

In the fall of 1967, they released one of their most ambitious albums, Of Cabbages and Kings. This psychedelic, satirical album was very different from the previous mellow Chad and Jeremy offerings and was rated very highly by the music critics of the day but sold poorly, as did the 1968 follow-up, the also critically acclaimed The Ark.

They played a fictional duo called 'The Redcoats' on a Jan. 1965 episode of the TV sitcom Dick Van Dyke Show that satirized Beatlemania. They also had a guest appearance on the Patty Duke Show in late February 1965, playing the unknown British singing duo Nigel & Patrick, where they performed the song "The Truth Often Hurts the Heart", along with "Yesterday's Gone". They appeared as itinerant actors in "That's Noway, Thataway," a January 1966 episode of the comedic western Laredo Laredo (TV series) .

The duo appeared as themselves in the December 1966 episodes "The Cat's Meow" and "The Bat's Kow Tow" of the television series Batman Batman (TV series) , in which the guest villain was Julie Newmar as Catwoman.

Clyde appeared in 1966 as a bachelor contestant on the The Dating Game where he won.
Stuart voiced Flaps the vulture in Disney's 1967 film The Jungle Book The_Jungle_Book_%281967_film%29 .

In 1983 Chad and Jeremy reunited to record the album Chad Stuart & Jeremy Clyde for the small U.S. Rocshire Records label and are currently doing concerts. Jeremy Duncan and his brother Chad in the comic strip Zits Zits (comic strip) are namesakes of this duo.

In 2003, PBS reunited Chad and Jeremy with a 1960s pop reunion special which also prompted a tour concert tour . They have been touring ever since. In 2008, a greatest hits album, Ark-eology was released and a new album Zanzibar Sunset as well as a documentary titled Yesterday's Back are due to be released in 2009.

They performed at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City Park City, Utah , Utah in January 2009, and will be touring all year.
